A national wholesale retail chain is giving back to some local teachers.
As part of it's Teacher Rewards program, today Sam's Club and Wal–Mart awarded 20 Meadowbrook Elementary School teachers with $50 reward cards to purchase classroom supplies.
This is the fifth year that Wal–Mart and Sam's Club have supported the Teacher Rewards program.
More $4.5 million dollars has been donated to over 90,000 educators national wide through the program.
It's estimated that teachers typically spend around $500 of their own money each year on student needs.
